* Governor Pat Quinn has a new Twitter account…
Acccording to the Associated Press, the governor’s office has launched an official Twitter feed and Flickr photo page, which they say the governor will use to get feedback from people around the state. His office says that when the governor tweets, his missives will be marked with “-GOV.”
Quinn’s inaugural tweets Wednesday evening included a shout out to the Biotechnology Industry Organization, a national biotechnology group that presented Gov. Quinn with its “Governor of the Year” award in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.
He also thanked U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) for his welcome to the online community. Sen. Durbin launched his own Twitter feed in early March.
The governor’s account is here. I went through the list of people he’s following and noticed that his first follow appeared to be, um, me.
